“I Don’t Know” Meditation

In ‘I don’t know’ meditation, all labels have to be kept aside.

In ‘I don’t know’ meditation, all labels have to be kept aside.


  1. In ‘I don’t know’ meditation, all labels have to be kept aside. A label is any word that we use to represent a physical object.
  2. When you see any object – like looking at a wall clock in your house, tell yourself, “I don’t know what this is.” Whenever you see any object at home or even if you see your mother, then don’t say immediately that this is my mother. You should say, “I don’t know who this is. Let me see which lady is going”. Then look at her face carefully. You would be surprised that so many changes have taken place in your mother’s face and you haven’t even noticed them because seeing had totally stopped. You have put the label that “This is mother. What is there to be seen?” Seeing has stopped. But we have to start seeing again. Looking at a chair, don’t say ‘chair’. Ask, ‘What is this thing?’. Seeing in this way changes your attention. This is called ‘I don’t know’ meditation.
  3. After having seen every object in the room without labeling, then that very room will become alive for you. Every object will feel more colorful and more alive. This meditation will also end your boredom.

Interval Meditation

Feel in the blank

Feel In the Blank

  1. Close your eyes and sit in the meditation posture and fingers of hand in dhyan mudra (index finger touching the tip of thumb, remaining fingers stretched out). Remain aware of your breath moving in and out through the nostrils.
  2. Now when the breath goes in and comes out, then there is an interval between these two, even if it is the thousandth part of a second. Concentrate your mind on that interval (point) where the breath is neither going in nor coming out, i.e. there is a gap – blank. (Feel in the blank, don’t fill in the blank). Similar interval exists in between two thoughts. People fill this interval with thoughts and that is why they always exist in the head. Meditation connects us to the heart – not the physical heart, but our center.
  3. Similarly, when the breath after coming out goes in again, then there is such a point when the breath has stopped for some time. Keep your attention on that interval (gap) making a firm resolution in your mind that I will be aware about both these points of every breath – where the breath changes its direction. Your normal breathing should continue. If you miss these points, then there is no need to worry. Pay attention to the next breath.
  4. Our breathing is always going on all the time. That is why this meditation can be done anywhere and anytime.

Thought Meditation

  1. Close your eyes and sit in the meditation posture and fingers of hand in dhyan mudra (index finger touching the tip of thumb, remaining fingers stretched out).
  2. Start watching your thoughts. See which thoughts are going on inside you.
  3. Keeping the body steady, keep watching the types of thoughts that are going on in your mind from a distance (without getting identified, remaining separate). In this meditation, while being separate, you will know what kind of thoughts go on in your mind, what thoughts are going on about various subjects…
  4. Keep watching and knowing your thoughts like a witness. Don’t label any thought as good or bad. Avoid any such desire that I want more thoughts or I don’t want any thoughts.
  5. Initially do this meditation for 5 minutes and gradually go on increasing its time. When you become an expert in this meditation, then start giving numbers to your thoughts.
